When I hear the word diabetes I translate that to,”you can never eat anything that tastes good again.” There are times that eating healthy means my husband regulates what I eat because I have no will power or desire to eat healthy. In doing some research I found some super foods that will keep your blood sugar in line and are excellent raw. Some of them surprised me. Which ones surprised you the most?
Walnuts contain the polyunsaturated fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid, which has been shown to lower inflammation. These powerhouse nuts have been found to have antioxidant, anticancer, antiviral, and anti-high cholesterol properties and can help stop and reverse the progression of chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
Vegetables, like broccoli and cauliflower, contain a compound called sulforaphane, and that triggers several anti-inflammatory processes that improve blood sugar control and protect blood vessels from cardiovascular damage. You can enjoy it raw, roasted or steamed! I love dipping mine in hummus.
